What I Bought In November

Short and sweet what I bought post! Showing you two things I bought for myself last month - I did take advantage of some of the black Friday and Cyber Monday sales but that was to buy Christmas presents for others. So I wanted to share some things I picked up for myself before all the sales, just two things!


What I Bought:




Why I Bought It:


The shoes were such a lucky find. I have never been able to find shoes in my size at an opshop but I always glance at the shoe rack just in case. I was thrilled to realise these were in my size and just $3! Looking a little worse for wear I figured I could clean them up a bit at home, trying a few different things to get rid of the yellowing the scuff marks and stains on the leather. They certainly don't look new but $3 for a $150 pair of shoes I'm pretty happy with how they scrubbed up!




The bag was an impulse buy - and while I also bought it at the start of November it was on better sale than it ended up being on Black Friday. I'd been eyeing it for a while unsure about the colour it looked on the David Jones site, but once it was further reduced I had so snap it up. As you can see in the video I didn't need to worry about the colour! It's been a firm favourite bag to wear since I bought it.



How I've Worn It:

The bag has had the most wear as I've only worn the shoes once so far as it took a while to clean them up. I was pleased with how they were looking so wore them on Monday to check out how comfortable they would be with my knee injury. Pretty happy with them! I know both pieces will get a lot more wear in future too.

I'm not planning to make any fashion related purchases in December but who knows what sales will tempt me 😂 At the moment though I'm on track to be under my 2020 fashion budget and I want to stick there!

  2. Maybe it works when you are washing your Adidas sneakers in the washing maschine! A friend of mine always does this although I have to admit I never tried this. But the shoes are really a great find! And the bag is definitely perfect - no wonder you are wearing it without any pause!

    1. I've only found a designer clutch at an opshop - all the other designer bags I've seen have been fakes sadly!

  11. You did an excellent job styling this bag so many ways. Rebecca Minkoff makes great mid range bags. Did I ever tell you I met her? I also went to a FW show in her store.

  14. WOW, sounds like a great bargain on the shoes. I think I've found one pair of shoes in a thrift shop over the years. I'm VERY hard to fit, so... The bag is really pretty - love the color. My goodness, how many of those do you have? :-)

  15. I am not sure if my original comment went through. So here it is again!!
    I just love the color of that purse, and those sneakers were a fabulous deal Mica. I bet a little magic eraser scrubbing would make them good as new.

    1. The magic eraser really didn't work that well sadly! But a bit of bleach on the rubber and some leather cleaner on the body of the shoes cleaned them up well!
